Squeezing In Appointments

The squeeze was created to help Community Acupuncture clinics get more people in the hour than the slot times allow. Somebody calls because there are no appointments available that afternoon and want to be squeezed in. There are a few rules.

  • Squeezes can only be done within the admin. Patients cannot make their own squeeze.
  • A practitioner needs to have a block set for that day to make sure the squeezed appointment is included in their EHR. So, make sure to choose the practitioner.
  • You can edit a squeeze's location or practitioner.
  • Squeezes that occur during a block show a small "s" tab to the right of the block.
  • Patient selection works just like appointment creation works.

Tips for squeezes

  • Make the time an offset to your block time slots so they will not occupy a slot. If your slots are 9:00, 9:10, 9:20, make your squeeze at 9:15 or 9:14.
  • Use squeezes for phone in and walk in appointment scheduling. That way the slots are available for patients to make them online.
